Thirty Days!!!!

Many Gods West is oh-so-soon!¬† We’re pretty excited. ūüôā

We have a few updates for you:

Online Registration is still open.  You can continue to register through Brown Paper Tickets until July 15th, or at the event.  This includes day-passes, as well.

Lodging.¬† The Governor Hotel has no reduced-rate rooms available any longer, but it does offer regular, single-bed (king-size) rooms at a rate of 159/night.¬† There are other nearby options, including a small hostel and several traveler-type motels.¬† Olympia is a very compact city with good public transportation, so these other options are great even if you aren’t renting a car.¬† We’ll post about these soon.

We need volunteers!¬† We’ll need folks to help with

  • on-site registration
  • take-down/set-up
  • information folks
  • and other tasks

Also! Do you have professional or quality recording equipment and are you willing to record a workshop or presentation? (there will be no photography or recording of rituals).¬† Please let us know.¬† We’re hoping to record and make available as many presentations as possible.

If you are able to help with any of the above, please email us at with the subject heading ‘Volunteer’

Opening Ritual

To participate in the opening ritual, we ask that you bring the following

  • ¬†water from your local (sacred) sources;
  • ¬†dirt from your local sacred landscapes;
  • ¬†images of the Deities;
  • ¬†food and drink offerings.

For more in-depth information on this, please see this post which includes information on how to participate even if you are unable to attend.


We’ll be setting up a thread on our Facebook page specifically for people who are interested in sharing space or co-ordinating rides.¬† If you don’t have Facebook, please contact us and we’ll add your offer/request to the thread on your behalf.


Several groups, including presenters, are doing fundraisers to help defray their costs to attend.¬† Starting tomorrow, we’ll highlight these here and on Facebook.¬† Are you raising funds to attend?¬† Please let us know!

See you all very, very soon!
